Attraction Information

For a family day out with an extra spark, make sure to head down to Magna Science Adventure Centre! Get ready to explore over 100 of the wackiest interactive experiments, learning has never been so fun.

Get blown into the air pavilion and feel the force of wind before diving into the water pavilion just go with the flow! But make sure to bring some extra clothes as the rainy clouds mean there’s little chance you’ll stay dry. Let the fire pavilion ignite your little one's interest in science while you prepare to descend into the Earth Pavilion filled with loads of hands-on games, real life JCBs and a quarry face to explode.

Then head outside to the Sci-Tek playground, bouncing on the trampolines, zooming down the twisted slides and exploring the huge castles. That’s not all, there’s even a water play area with all you need to kick-start your kid's imagination and get them active! Don't forget to catch the amazing Big Melt show running every hour with amazing lights explaining the steel making process.

Worst experience Ever! 1 out of 5 stars

My wife and I decided to visit the Magna Centre with our two grand children on a cold and miserable day in the Easter holidays. It turned out to be more miserable than we imagined and nearly £50 lighter in our pension funds. First, there were no concessions for two adults and two children at the reception desk, and no reductions for senior citizens. The receptionist was very abrupt when we enquired about any discounts that may be available. We also enquired about a family ticket, but we may as well have asked for the moon! Secondly, when we entered the main building we were greeted with a very cold, dark environment with screens that did not work, very little information about what we were meant to be 'experiencing' and that was even before we got to the first zone. We entered the Fire Zone first, but most of the aparatus on display did not work, so we moved on to the Air Zone next with even less working. This continued throughout the whole visit and all of us (including the kids) were just happy to leave the building as soon as we could. There should be some guidance around the place, but we did not see one person to ask during the visit. The worst experience for me though (as a retired engineer), was the total lack of maintenance being carried out on anything. Surely if you wanted to see how things worked in a Steel Works you would expect machines and aparatus to be functional, but sadly, this was not the case. We will not be visiting the Magna Centre ever again.and I will strongly recommend to my family and friends to avoid the same experience that we had.


Brilliant day out for the family 5 out of 5 stars

Lots to entertain, my kids loved it! And its free to upgrade the tickets to an annual pass so can come back again.


waste of money 1 out of 5 stars

The staff on the desk were very rude, miserable. Last thing you need after a long drive ,and paying £33 to get in. What a waste of money. It was dark cold . Most of the stuff was broken nothing worked . I had no idea where to go due to poor directions. Don't eat the food its Absolutely bad. I got a refund for the food.Over all a complete waste of time and money.You have to pay extra to play outside another £21 for three kids.


Way too expensive for a non-working "adventure". 2 out of 5 stars

Could have been an interesting day out. Big disappointment when paying 30+ (for family of 3) only gives you entrance to a non functional experience. A lot of items were broken and/or badly maintained. Dark, cold building with poor guidance. Could have been so much more attractive with a little more effort. Just a waste of money.
